They need to win two of their remaining matches to finish in the top 3. Even a bonus-point win will assure them a spot in the first half of the tournament.

He smashed a sensational 63 in the previous clash against the Giants. De Villiers stroked his way to a great knock of an unbeaten 69 against Paarl Rocks.
Reeza Hendricks should be the 2nd pick in this category. He is a brilliant timer of the ball and has been very consistent in this format. In the last clash against Paarl Rocks, he scored 74 and looked in great touch.
Dean Elgar will be the 3rd pick in this category. The southpaw had a few relatively poor outings but looked in great touch during the initial stages of the tournament. He scored 57 against the Durban Heats and an unbeaten 88 against the Paarl Rocks.
